1er Grand Cru Classé

2020 Chateau Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan, France

Château Haut-Brion Rouge
Elegant and complex, Château Haut-Brion red presents mineral aromas and a unique complexity. Its strength lays in the finish, which is surprisingly long. This aromatic persistence is due to its very noble origins.

TASTING NOTES
The colour of this Château Haut-Brion is a dark, radiant red.
Before swirling, the nose already reveals both fresh and spicy notes.
Swirling the wine confirms good ripeness of the grapes, with no excess.
The first taste is incredibly tightly-knit and precise.
Straight away the wine is assertive, with instant presence.
The development is never forceful, but what presence on the palate!
The tactile sensations are completed by the taste, the flavours.
The tannins are well-rounded, refined, juicy.
Excellent length, even when the wine is no longer in the mouth.
The musical score composed by the three grape varieties, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
and Cabernet Sauvignon, is incredibly accurate and harmonious.

The weather
Winter 2019/2020 is mild and wet. The vine’s growth cycle begins very early (it is the earliest year after 1989). In Spring, constant rainfall encourages mildew to appear, so we are doubly attentive. Flowering is very early too and occurs as usual. From mid-June and until mid-August, an exceptionally hot, dry period sets in, during which we note three periods of heatwave. As a result, we decrease work carried out in the vineyard, especially leaf-thinning, to protect the wholeness of the grape bunches and to preserve aromatic freshness. From 11th August, steady rainfall enables the grape to perfect its ripeness. Harvests of white grapes are early and gathered in very good conditions. Temperatures are above seasonal averages, ideal for completing the ripening of all the red grape varieties, which entered our fermenting rooms in excellent health.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2020 Haut-Brion is more aromatically demonstrative than La Mission Haut-Brion, bursting with aromas of blackberries and raspberries mingled with licorice, cigar wrapper, pencil shavings, and nicely integrated new oak. Full-bodied, ample, and fleshy, it's rich and layered, with an enveloping core of fruit that's girdled by plenty of sweet, powdery tannin. Despite checking in at a similarly lofty alcoholic degree to 2019, its more granular tannic profile tempers the vintage's sweetness of fruit and lends the wine a more classically proportioned, and more classically structured, profile.
